South Carolina bond revoked after second DUI offense

Drinking and driving can have serious consequences. The most severe type of DUI charge is a felony DUI. However, the consequences for this type of DUI can become quite severe if the alleged drunk driver has a prior record with multiple offenses. In addition to harsher penalties, loss of certain privileges can also result for a convicted offender. A man who was charged with felony DUI in Charleston County, South Carolina experienced this scenario recently.

The man was initially charged with felony DUI in January, after his involvement in a car accident that resulted in a tragic fatality. According to bystanders, the man appeared to get out of his truck after the collision and throw a six pack of beer over the side of the guard rail. However, the man's charges were eventually changed from felony DUI to reckless homicide. He was also released on bond.

Unfortunately, his bond was revoked when he was pulled over for allegedly driving while intoxicated in another state. Several individuals had complained to authorities about a truck swerving in and out of lanes of traffic. When the man was pulled over, he reportedly had a blood alcohol content of .222 and rejected a second opportunity to take a breathalyzer test.

Situations such as this one, where the defendant has multiple offenses, can make a felony DUI case much more difficult to defend. Therefore, it is important that individuals who find themselves in these types of situations seek the assistance of a DUI defense attorney.

There are DUI defense attorneys in South Carolina that have proven the results of blood alcohol testing to be false or inaccurate, greatly assisting their clients in the process. Experienced, local attorneys can also negotiate on their clients' behalf, either reducing the charges, obtaining a less severe punishment for the defendant, or both.
